Lab description

Logic apps allow non-developers to automate workflows. With this lab, you can learn how to create workflows in Azure Logic Apps, work with variables and controls to develop complex workflows and use connectors to integrate external services into your own workflows. Logic Apps have been around a long time but the new Azure Administrator certifcation exam made them a requirement for certification. With this beginner-level lab, you will be able to start from scratch along with understanding the benefits of automation and its importance in DevOps culture. 

Learning Objectives

  • Understand what Logic Apps are and how they can be used
  • Create Logic Apps workflows using the graphical designer
  • Use variables and controls to create more complex workflows

Intended Audience

  • This lab is recommended for Azure Administrator certification exam candidates
  • Anyone interested in automating workflows, including non-developers


  • Basic knowledge of Azure Storage is beneficial but not required
